Canals of Amsterdam

Some weeks ago I was showing my brother the map on this photoblog containing the different cities I had visited during the years I have been living in Europe and he asked me about Amsterdam. I haven't noticed but I realized I haven't published any picture yet from the famous Dutch capital and since I recently had a connecting flight passing through schiphol I thought that was a good opportunity to take a good picture for conveuropean. One of most fascinating parts of Amsterdam are its canal system, conceived as part of the city planning in the 17th century. In this picture you can observe one of this canals at night, with the church of St. Nicholas in the background.
